Kaleb Tarczewski, Jamal Murray star at Pan-Am Games


The Pan-Am Games kicked off yesterday, and two talented college players in Arizona big man Kaleb Tarczewski and Kentucky guard Jamal Murray put up great performances, as were reported by Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.

Tarczewski, a seven-footer who will begin his senior season in the fall, had eight points and 13 rebounds in Team USA’s 85-62 victory over Venezuela. In three seasons with the Wildcats, he averaged 8.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 56 percent from the field.

Murray was even better in Team Canada’s 105-88 win over Puerto Rico, posting 12 points and two assists. The crazy part is that he only just committed to Kentucky last month and has yet to play a single minute of college basketball!

Needless to say, given how well both young men played to kick off the Pan-Am Games, they certainly do have bright futures on the collegiate level, and perhaps beyond.
